Entourage Of Arrogance

August 25, 2021

What is mankind’s biggest problem, when it comes to a relationship with God? It’s pretty simple. We don’t think we need a God. Who knows better what’s best for me than me? That attitude is a recipe for disaster, and pastor Al will share the reasons why today, as we continue in James chapters four and five.

Arrogance and pride are major roadblocks to a close relationship with God. Who really knows what’s best for us? Most of us, of course, think we do. However, James, in a very bold and uncompromising way, shows us in chapter four of his epistle that reliance on God is the only way to go!

 There are some things that our Heavenly Father says we are to avoid, and for our own good I might add. That’s the subject of today’s study in James chapter four. If we want to walk in the spirit, there are things we definitely need to avoid.

We’ve all experienced saying something that later we wished we hadn’t... whether it be a curse word, or something that hurt another a great deal.  It’s amazing how such a small part of the body can have such a large impact.  No wonder James likens it to a fire!  Let’s see now how we can use it for good rather than evil.

Today on The Dwelling Place, as we return to our study of James, we’ll be reminded of the power of words. They have the power to motivate millions of people to hang tough in a difficult situation, and they have the ability to cut a person to ribbons.

Join us in Revelation chapter eighteen, verse twelve.

Soon after, Al realized God’s call on  his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band  called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975. 

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
